What You Need to Know About Windows in Florida

Florida’s nickname, “The Sunshine State,” was not pulled from thin air. Our state, especially throughout its southern counties, offers some of the brightest daylight and clearest skies in the entire United States. 

Countless homes throughout Florida feature window configurations designed to capture the most sunlight possible. From large picture windows to sunrooms and beyond, you can enjoy some of the best natural lighting available. 

However, homes in Florida carry a consistent risk of being damaged during the frequent hurricane activity the state also experiences. Though “Hurricane season” starts on June 1 and ends on November 30, severe storm activity can happen at any time of the year. 

Protecting any home against Florida hurricanes starts with the windows, doors, and roof. These are the most vulnerable areas when exposed to gale force winds, driving rain and large debris being launched through the air. 

At Paradise Exteriors, we offer the highest-performing hurricane impact windows in Florida. Rated for winds up to 200mph and independently tested for impact resistance, Paradise Platinum windows offer a permanent solution for your home’s windows that require no costly and time-consuming setup, teardown, or maintenance before or after a hurricane event.

The Lowest Maintenance Windows in Florida

Don’t want to deal with rushing to the hardware store to purchase nails and plywood boards before the hurricane arrives? This option, while a popular one for many, does not provide complete protection and can actually cause damage to your home’s siding and window frames when it’s time to remove the boards. 

Other options like shutters and panels are noisy, block out sunlight, and may leave gaps where storm forces can still cause damage. 

Once installed, impact windows provide continuous, year-round support. Just make sure they are locked before the storm arrives, and they are ready! 

Hurricane impact windows are also incredibly easy to clean. Though they require no maintenance, you can maintain their crystal-clear visibility with any standard glass cleaning agent that you have at home.

Many homeowners that have upgraded to Paradise Platinum windows have experienced as much as a 31% reduction in their monthly electricity bills! How does this happen?

The windows, their frames, and the superior sealing technology restricts the leakage of cold air. This places less burden on your air conditioning system; resulting in cooler indoor temperatures and far less energy consumption. 

HOA and Code Compliant

Florida is a state known for many communities that are governed by homeowners associations (HOAs). Beyond municipal code requirements, your local HOA may set other guidelines for your property to remain in good standing. 

Oftentimes, HOA guidelines state what cosmetic changes homeowners can and cannot make to their exteriors. In some cases, this can include limitations on window styles and replacement options. 

Keeping this in mind, Paradise Platinum Series windows are designed for broad HOA and municipal building code compliance. They can be custom-sized to your existing openings to avoid any new construction or demolitions. 

Choose from a variety of window styles such as: 

  • Double hung windows
  • Single hung windows
  • Horizontal sliding windows 
  • Casement windows
  • Picture windows
  • Awning windows

They can also be custom-fitted to any nonstandard opening shape, such as a diamond or trapezoid. We recommend replacing all of your home’s windows at the same time to offer complete and full protection for your property.
